Ricky Rubio

A popular basketball player since age 14 in his native Spain, he was drafted by the Timberwolves in 2009 and made his debut with the team two seasons later. The spunky, long-haired point guard tore his ACL in March of his first year in the NBA, yet still finished second in Rookie of the Year voting.
